The proud new dad took to Twitter to announce the big news, accompanied with a heartwarming black-and-white photo showing him holding his newborn’s fragile little hand.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy, and beautiful,” Zayn tweets. “To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together.”
In similar fashion, Gigi shortly followed and took to social media to introduce their daughter to the world. "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love," the new mom proudly captions her Instagram post, which also features a black-and-white photograph of her and her precious child locking hands.
Gigi and Zayn were first reported to be expecting back in April. The model, who also celebrated her 25th birthday, was then halfway through her pregnancy at 20 weeks.
Gigi revealed her gorgeous baby bump for the first time in July, while also noting why she didn’t like talking about her pregnancy so much given everything that’s happening in the world right now. “I’m pregnant through a pandemic! Obviously, my pregnancy is not the most important thing that’s going on in the world. That’s the reason [why] I felt that it’s not really something I need to share [with everyone else] apart from my family and friends.” She adds, “Right now, I just want to experience it. I don’t want to wake up every day and worry about looking cute and post something, you know?”
Congratulations, Zayn and Gigi! We can’t wait to see more photos of your new bundle of joy!
